"The Devil and Tom Walker"
This 9-page short story, "The Devil and Tom Walker," by Washington Irving is a great story for students learning about Romanticism and our nation's first author. The text is included (which is fair use) and has footnotes with vocabulary to help students understand the language from that time.
The reading questions have 14 short-answer questions with 2 multiple-choice questions. The document is 2 pages (and comes with a 2-page answer key).
The questions are Common Core aligned.
There is also a 23-slide PowerPoint that goes over the answers so that you can go through the questions with the entire class during discussions of the story.
The documents come in Word and in PDF; therefore, there are 26 pages and 23 slides.
This can also be used as a cold read in addition to being a quick lesson for emergency substitute lesson plans.
